Prep for Job Interviews with Background Checks

The clichéd job interview scenario pits the nervous applicant against an imposing potential employer. However, while interviewees may be anxious in these situations, the interviewers may actually be as well! There is a lot of pressure involved in making a hiring decision for your company, and you do not want to make a mistake and hire someone who will end up being a poor fit. Luckily, with pre-hiring services such as background checks, the pressure can be taken off! Read on to find out more.

Connect Background Check Discoveries with Your Interview Questionsbackground-checks-job-interviews

One way to properly utilize the results of your employee background check is to use details from it to craft your job interview questions. For example, if the applicant you are interviewing worked at a certain location for a short period of time, you should inquire as to why: was it a compatibility issue or a lack of qualifications on the applicant’s part? The answer may play a role in determining whether or not they will become a member of your company.

Background checks also involved getting in touch with employee references. Based on what these references report, you can develop even more job interview questions. If, for instance, a reference speaks in glowing terms about an applicant’s organizational skills, you could then ask in the interview for a specific example of those skills. Hearing how those skills can be demonstrated in a real-world office environment will help you see whether or not an applicant would be a beneficial asset to your company.

Trying to conduct a job interview without a little insight into the applicant can make for a stressful and unpleasant time. However, with the information supplied by background checks, you can relax and focus on getting to know the person with whom you may one day be working.
